The Lost Chord: March 29 - Bold Heads on Young Shoulders

richard_wagner_1830.jpg

Wagner wrote symphonies?  That’s right.  He took a crack at writing two of them, in a Beethovenian style, before finding his niche as a revolutionary opera composer.  Wagner’s Symphony in E will be heard, alongside early attempts by Gustav Holst and Claude Debussy.  Judging from their mature works, these three would be among the least likely to attempt sonata form.  Impetuous youth!  Composers at the start of their careers find the courage to strive for symphonic mastery, this Sunday at 10 pm.
